Decorating for Fall with Antique Accessories

F-1Fall is the time of the year when the earth rewards us with splendid bounty, and nature springs forth with tapestry of color.  It is also the season to entertain, so I love to decorate with rich colors of autumn for special gatherings of the season.  To make my holiday table special I often use antique accessories to enkindle unique and memorable settings.  The warm tones of this period remind me of a Dutch still life with an earthy and comforting palate.  I use antiques as my inspiration and my guide.  The earthy warmth of pottery and the bright glow of copper only add to harvest-hued arrangements.  These culinary antiquesare natural centerpieces in this season of gourmet entertainment.fallculinaryantiques

An Autumn inspired decorating tip: To put together this vignette I varied the texture with a warm pallet using earthy antique French pottery in contrast to the soft glow of antique copper accessories and amber glass oil lantern. I made two arrangements, one in monochromatic harvest greens and the other with seasonal golds and reds. Apples in the display carry the crimson color of Louisiana spider lilies throughout the display. The rustic farm table and antique door created a perfect backdrop for this seasonal vignette.

Wishing you an exciting and uplifting autumn!

Antiques in Style is a source of joy for me to create, and hopefully will be a source of inspiration for you! The variety, artistry and history of the antiques and vintage pieces that surround us every day provide pleasure, beauty and sometimes even intrigue.

The classics never go out of style, and each era, country, and even artisan's interpretations create an environment that is always full of surprises.

It is truly a pleasure to bring such timeless style together for every client and follower of my blog. And of course, your input is always welcome!
